home after several weeks in washington. he delivered a message to barack obama. >> abe has vowed to get the economy growing again during his second shot at power. the prime minister taught americans that he was back and so was japan. he and president barack obama issued a statement that signals abe might be leaning toward joining the asians on the transpacific partnership. they say japanese officials will rice and other products before joining the talks. abe underscored japan's commitment to ensuring the asia pacific region. he said he may decrease defense spending. he said he is even considering allowing japan to exercise its right to depends an ally under attack. the official position of the japanese government is that collective self-defense is against the constitution. abe explained japan's position on the senkaku islands. japan purchased the islands in september. chinese ships have entered the water around them over the last several months. >> translator: president obama and i agree at the summit to cooperate to defend free waters and to establish order based on law and not force.
. president obama is warning of dire consequences for all of us in lawmakers don't act quickly. we're talking about those forced budget cuts that take effect march 1st, slashing $85 billion from spending across the board this year. but with just ten days left, the consequences are backing more alarming. president obama outlined some of them today, told congress, let's make a deal while there is still some time. >> my door is open. i've put tough cuts and reforms on the table. i am willing to work with anybody to get this job done. none of us will get 100% of what we want. but nobody should want these cuts to go through because the last thing our families can afford right now is pain imposed unnecessarily by partisan recklessness and ideological rigid tea here in washington. visually, the president tried to make that point by having law enforcement officers standing behind him. many of them could lose their jobs. our joe johns is covering that with the different ways that the budget cuts could directly affect you. we also have renee marsh covering the potential cut and how it kol affect the fo
supplied to the rebels. the concern president obama had lying weapons would in effect be involved in a proxy war supported by iran and russia. the other side of the debate is nothing else is working and we need to create pressure on assad and build relationship with people inside syria who might take over one day. another factor is there are rebels, al-qaeda affiliated rebels the united states and the west doesn't support. and i don't think it's in the west's interest to see them end up at the top of the heap. >> rose: and then we turn to the story of the chinese army spying on the american government and american companies with david sanger of the "new york times," dune lawrence and michael riley of bloomberg businessweek. >> the cyber has been off to the side as something of an annoyance. i'm hearing this has gotten so big it's moving to the center of the relationship and it risks the rest of the relationship. i think the next thing you're going to see the president sending some kind of envoy to beijing to make that point. >> rose: the conflict in syria and spying on the unite
. anyway it came to the attention of the whitehouse, it was discussed president obama decided against it at the time and others who counseled against the proposal including vice president biden, tom dawn lynn who was recently a your show the national security advisor and susan rice. those are kind of the two camps, the whitehouse against the rest of the government as it existed at that time. but now we have a new national security team. >> rose: where was dennis mcdough know. >> i don't know where he was for a fact but i know dennis was very close to president obama. and i would probably put him in the camp of those being cautious about getting more deeply involved in the crises. and i think the argument would have lined up this way. on the side of caution, you know, you would be getting more deeply involved. and i think the concern president obama had was by supplying weapons would be in effect involved in a approximately war against a regime supported by iran and russia. on the other side of the debate the argument was well nothing else is working and we need to increase the press
, margaret warner looks at today's summit between president obama and japanese prime minister abe, where japan's tensions with china were very much in the forefront. >> suarez: our week long focus on guns, "after newtown" wraps up tonight with a report from chicago on the public health crisis in the city in the wake of rising gun violence. >> the people who come in after having been shot are some of the highest risk folks. these are people who have been shot, who may have been shot before, and really without some intervention, without some life- changing moment, the trajectory's either going to be jail or death. >> woodruff: mark shields and david brooks analyze the week's news. >> suarez: and, as a magistrate grants oscar pistorius bail, we talk to charlayne hunter gault about how his arrest has focused attention on the unusually high rate of violence against women in south africa. >> domestic violence is shot through the entire society from the highest of the highed in socioeconomic terms to the lowest of the low. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." >> major funding
obama's visit to the country in late 2012. but how can the u.s. ensure that this emerging south asian state becomes friend not foe? >> it's really a remarkable story, burma, of the past year, year and a half. maybe the most positive development we've seen globally, really. >> this is not a revolution of the people. it's a transformation of a regime, self-motivated to transform. > there have been a number of things that the regime has done that have been very surprising so. one was letting aung san suu kyi out of house arrest. >> the problem may be the expectations of the people now are too high. >> the military is a major wild card in this. (instrumental music) >> narrator: in a democracy, agreement is not essential, but participation is. >> never before in our history have we been so interconnected with the rest of the world. >> foreign policy is actually not foreign. >> america has faced great hardship before and each time we have risen to the challenge. >> the ultimate test is to move our society from where it is to where it has never been. >> narrator: join us as we discuss tod
for the libyan government that obama himself called the next day to ask for help with the investigation and the rest of it. graham is up for re-election in 2014, and he has been successful pressing the bengahzi story for as much as possible. again that's what his interest and concern is. he wants to go back to home state voters and say i stuck it to the president on this. i consider it to be as bad as watergate, and so he has no incentive whatsoever to stop doing that until the very last minute. that hasn't approached yet. >> michael: now, it's worth pointing out not only is graham up for re-election but it looks like he's going to get a primary as well. to see as right of the president as he possibly can seems like a good path for him to take. let's go to the president. what does this bode for the president's second term if he has this much trouble getting his nominees past of the democratic senate. >> it's funny you ask this. this all is playing out the same week that the president gave his state of the union dress to which he laid out a very ambitious liberal laundry list of things h
center, jacki sheckner. >> president obama will welcome president napolitano as the italian leader prepares to leave office. then he'll give out the 2012 citizens medal to 12 people, the nation's second highest civilian honor. former senator harris waford helped form the peace corps and been an advocate in higher education and will receive the award. he will make a trip to chicago making remarks about his proposals to strengthen the middle class and bolster our economy. >> congress heading home today leaving a decent amount of work as it heads into a recess. republicans have now blocked the confirmation of former senator chuck hagel as our next secretary of defense. and brennaman as the head of the c.i.a. in a new t.v. add for the n.r.a., a gun owner is a proclaimed proud defender of the second amendment. >> after the nra's disgusting response, i've had enough. you take money from the n.r.a. and then continue to do their bidding, we're going to remember that come election time. >> move on is running a separate add targeting senator rob portman of ohio. the senator said he could get
: with just a week left before automatic spending cuts are set to begin, the obama administration stepped up pressure on republicans in congress today. the latest warnings came over the potential impact that furloughs would have on air travel, starting in april. transportation secretary ray lahood said travelers could face new delays of 90 minutes at major airports in chicago, new york and san francisco. more than 100 air control towers at smaller airports could be closed, lahood said. airlines likely would cancel flights. and congress, he said, would hear of the fallout. >> it's not only the impact on the passengers, it's the impact that it has on airports, control towers, people who work there, airports. and their phones are going to start ringing. why does this have to happen? nobody likes a delay. nobody likes waiting in line. none of us do. if we can't get our hamburger within five minutes, if we can't get on the plane within 30, 40, 50 minutes after going through, you know what happens. they start calling their member of congress. >> suarez: more now on these latest warnings, the repub
of young democrats. to hear this man talk was really astounding. i am quite critical of the obama administration in terms of things i have done. in terms of hagel's nomination, i am very impressed. his views on foreign-policy almost seemed to dip -- too far beyond this era. my only feel is that the political parties will bring this ideology down simply because a lot of people are not prepared for it. thank you and have a good day. guest: i think -- i would beg to differ about the too far beyond this era. i had the privilege of working for former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward.
to produce good citizens, i join president obama today in asserting with urgency that our citizenry deserves a strong foreign policy to protect our interests in the world. a wise investment in foreign policy can yield for a nation the same return that education does for its students. no investment that we may that-- make that is as small as this investment put forward such a sizable benefit for ourselves and for our fellow citizens of the world. that's why i wanted to have this conversation with you today, which i hope is a conversation that extends well beyond the borders of charlottesville, will be on this university, to all americans. when i talk about a small investment in foreign policy in the united states, i mean it. not so long ago, someone told the american people and asked how big is our international affairs budget? most said 25% of our national budget. they thought it ought to be pared back to 10% of our national budget. let me tell you, i would take 10% in a heartbeat, folks. because 10% is exactly 10 times greater than what we do invest in our efforts to protect america around
, it is a goal. certainly, that is what president obama said he supports, that someday -- probably not in this lifetime, but some day we should hope for a world that would be free of nuclear weapons. i have heard you say that you agree with those two statements prepared but do you also agree that as long as nuclear weapons exist, we have to maintain a safe, secure, and effective nuclear arsenal to deter any adversary? >> yes, completely, absolutely. i have never had any position but that. as i indicated this morning and this afternoon, i will continue to take the position. as i said in my opening statement and an answer to other questions, our nuclear deterrent has probably been the core of keeping world peace and avoiding a world war iii. as long as there is the threat of nuclear weapons, and like you noted and president obama noted in his speech in 2009, it probably will not happen in our lifetime. but just as you noted, and in senator read's comments about what president reagan laid on the cape -- on the table in 1986, we need to keep working on it and moving forward and temptin
-span. president obama will honor the recipients of the national medal of science and national medal of technology and innovation, the highest honors bestowed by the u.s. government upon scientists, engineers, and inventors. you will have it for you later in our program schedule. at the white house, jay carney held his daily briefing, addressing a number of issues including a bombing at the u.s. embassy in turkey today. >> does the president considered the attack on our embassy in turkey to be a terrorist attack? >> that is an excellent question a suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror, a terrorist attack. i think this is an incident that has just occurred and i don't want to get ahead of it, is being investigated. we strongly condemn what was a suicide attack against our embassy in ankara, which took place at the embassy's our security perimeter. details are still emerging about what exactly happened, who was responsible. it is clearly an act of terror. it caused -- cost hte life about least one individual, a turkish security guard. we are working with th
that the strategic, one of the strategic principleses that the president and the obama administration brought at the outset of our first term is that with constructive and productive great power relationships you can get a lot done in the world. and if they go off the track it is much more difficult and frankly we've seen it, that proposition that you just laid out has been proven i think in the context where. there has been cooperation, we have gotten a lot done with great power of corporate raise and we can talk about that in terms of iran and other places in afghanistan. on the reset. you asked a question directly. he did the reset work. in the first term if you look at the list of things you are able to accomplish. we have had a change of leadership in russia. we will get that in a secretary. we have been able to accomplish, really, through great power negotiation, and great power, productive and constructive relationship, we have a new start treaty in the arms control area which will -- >> what's the status of that. >> the status this. the status it has gone into effect and is being impl
will shake out. it's just the beginning of the term for mr obama, which i am really glad that we have a black president for the first time and that is doing a really great. great i do approve democracy 100%. i am a democrat. in regard to the two points. are you still there? host: a if you could get to the minimum wage. caller: bringing to the minimum wage up to $9 and ours is kind of high. -- $9 an hour. if we look at an increase of $1.50, that's a burden to employers, even if you have one employee. we have seen increases in the minimum wage throughout history. typically it does not go up a whole dollar. it does not make much sense in regard to the cost of living and [indiscernible] . it's not going to help. i think the minimum wage needs to be increased. it should not be more than 95 cents. there are a lot of rules. host: i think we get your point. dawn is in florida. caller: i totally support the increase in minimum wage. i work for fortune 500 grocery chain that's in the top 100. i make $9 an hour. they make billions a year. i an a cashier.i sca i scan food all day that i cannot afford to
establish, uh, a doctrine, uh, that you can call the obama doctrine, which simply says that where the united states confronts a conflict in which the u.s is not itself directly threatened, but where we have interests, and where we have both regional allies, and we have some sort of international authorization through the united, the united nations, that the u.s. will feel comfortable in using some military force. >> but when our interests and values are at stake we have a responsibility to act. that's what's happened in libya over the course of these last six weeks. >> but the intervention in libya ruffled feathers in russia and china. both nations accused nato of pursuing a political agenda rather than a humanitarian one. >> it's been a very divisive issue. you have the europeans and the united states seeing it as a very clear-cut victory for the u.n. the russians, the chinese, the south africans, even though the south africans supported intervention, but, uh, the brazilians, the indians, have been much less, uh, supportive of, of the whole outcome that they have ceded as a sort of a, as a
and president obama are a good team, that is what matters. i don't worry so much about his policy positions one way or another. but the fact that they feel that they can be a good team together, that is important. unless the president nominate somebody who is just, in my mind, unqualified or something. i tend to think the leader should be about who he wants. >> thank you, general. [applause] .. we need yours poured and we need your input. and so we changed a few things about the board meeting. we shorten them considerably. we stayed away from the details or to get in on the weeds of how you build a car, but the bigger questions of financing, morale, positioning marketing. the board is very supportive of that and we kept them informed and we just took off. >> up next, fred kaplan tax about general david petraeus and his advisers transferring the military to face my wars against insurgents and terrorists. he spoke at the library in louisville, kentucky for an hour. [applause] >> thank you. thanks for coming out. so i writes a column called war stories. the word for it is in the subtitle of my boo
secretary of defense. his record of service to this country is untarnished. 12 days later president obama's support for his qualified nominee is still strong. 12 days later the majority of senators still support his confirmation. senate republicans have delayed for the better part of two weeks for one reason: partisanship. at a time when our nation faces threats abroad -- and that's an understatement -- there is a fair and constructive confirmation process. politically motivated delays send a terrible signal to our allies around the world and they send a terrible signal to tens of thousands of americans serving in afghanistan, other parts of the world and people serving in the united states. for the sake of national security it is time to set aside partisanship. the three days across-the-board cuts to defense spending are scheduled to take effect. the pentagon needs a seasoned leader to diplomat these cuts, cuts for which an overwhelmingly majority of republicans in congress voted. the so-called sequester, mr. president, was supported by 174 republicans in the house of representatives, 28
and president obama are a good team, that is what matters. though much worry about his policy positions one way or another because he will be a policy maker. the president's policies will go but the fact that the field that they can be a good team, to me that is the important thing. allows the president nominates somebody who is just, in my mind on qualify for something, i tend to think a leader should get to they want because we will hold him responsible for it. >> thank you, general mcchrystal. we have to stop now. [applause] thank you. >> primetime continues in a few moments with dr. fred kaplan on how the chain's u.s. military strategy from his book the insurgents. in an hour we look back at the gulf war and a collection of essays by journalists, government officials, and scholars. and jewelry year retired general mcchrystal on his memoir. several events to tell you about tomorrow. says >> the communism of china basically is communism in name only these days and preserves the power of the members of the communist party, but they basically, through -- opening the country up and now it has be
attack e-mails. in terms of what the obama administration can do, i think this gives us the opportunity and significant leverage with the chinese to increase the amount of transparency and debate on cyber and especially to increase the dialogue with the people at the center. >> woodruff: is it the sort of thing a company or individual can say sign up for security software and prevent? >> i wouldn't worry necessarily as an individual but as a company i would download the report, i would take it to my i.t. or security staff and say what are we doing about the issues in this report? and then at the higher level, at the strategic level, i would swhal is my government doing about this? what is the position that we're going to take with the chinese. the they now have a hold they can use in discussion with our allies, the chinese government that is not classified, it's unclassified. >> woodruff: very quickly, are we talking about legislation or somethat that can be done by executives? >> well, many support the legislation that chairman rogers who has put forth and for anyone who has privacy re
. and this afternoon we are honored to host hillary rodham clinton. during her last 24 hours as president obama's first president obama's first secretary of state and immediately afterwards and told she might be expected to party like it's cartagena all over again. [laughter] we did a research and this is the eighth time that hillary clinton has spoken at the council and her third appearance in and her current incarnation as secretary of state. this afternoon speech is probably the most anticipated one she has given here and indeed it may be the most anticipated farewell address since 1796. [laughter] i suspect though that her views on untangling alliances might be somewhat different than george washington's. much has been made of the mile she has put in as the country's 67 secretary of state. you've seen the using the statistics. she has visited 112 countries and locked -- miles of flight time. more important than that madam secretary is what you have put into these miles and your 10 years coincide with what the most consequential events and decisions of this young century the balancing american for
